Green places

The green places are reserved for EPFL staff, Innovation Park companies and permanent service providers.
Parkings

Green spaces are managed through an online parking authorizations purchase system, via one’s Camipro purse. This enables drivers to pay for their parking spaces according to actual use.

A parking authorization is necessary on week days, from 7 am to 5 pm.

Reservations and payment for parking authorizations will be made through the EPFL Campus app (iOS or Android), or on the myCAMIPRO website.

A price capping system is implemented to ensure you never pay more than CHF 45.- per month (period from the first day of the month to the last), respectively never more than CHF 400.- per year (period from January 1 to December 31).

CHF 1.50
Half-day (7h-13h / 11h-17h)
CHF 2.50
Full day (7h-17h)
CHF 45.-
Monthly (full month)

Once you have reached your monthly (respectively annual) cap, parking authorizations that you purchase during the ongoing month will cost you CHF 0.-

A parking authorization is necessary on week days, from 7 am to 5 pm. Outside these hours, parking on green spaces is free.

Parking authorizations that have been paid but not used (“I bought a parking authorization for such day but in the end I did not come by car to work”) are not reimbursed.

Employees of the EPFL and the EPFL Innovation Park can also benefit from the carpooling platform fairpark, which connects drivers with similar routes and travel times.

Authorization

Campus users entitled to use green spaces are EPFL staff members (employees, postgraduates, apprentices) and permanent service providers (catering, security, cleaning, etc.), as well as 200 students selected according to their application file.

The parking authorizations are nominative (name of person + plate(s) number(s)). Occasional visitors are hence redirected to the white areas (with parking meters).

For an employee or a permanent service provider, here are the two methods to purchase a parking authorization:

  • Authorization purchase via the EPFL Campus app (smartphone)

Download the EPFL Campus app (iOS or Android). Follow the procedure in the reservation and payment manual.

  • Authorization purchase via myCAMIPRO (computer)

Connect to the purchasing website (compulsory Gaspar login). Follow the instructions on the website.

Caution! It is essential that the balance of your Camipro purse is high enough to purchase one or several parking authorizations. If it is not sufficient, you will have to charge your Camipro card.

If you are a Bachelor or Master student and you wish to obtain a parking authorization for the semester (CHF 75.-/semester), you need to register on the EPFL Campus app (iOS or Android) or on the dedicated purchasing website.

In the EPFL Campus app, you will find the “parking” tab that will take you to a registration form.

The periods to submit your request are the following:

  • Spring semester: registration from January 1 to 31
  • Fall semester: registration from August 1 to 31

Only 200 parking authorizations will be delivered to students.

If your request is accepted, you will receive an email inviting you to pay for your semester’s parking authorization through the EPFL Campus app (iOS or Android) or the website (payment with your Camipro purse only).

If you are an employee from an EPFL Innovation park company and you need a parking authorization on a green parking place, you have to ask your administrator. He or she will confirm that you are eligible, because only a limited number of parking authorizations are available for each company.

Once you have confirmation from your administrator that a green parking place is available, he or she will have to inform the parking desk (managed by Securitas) via e-mail. They will make sure your name is on the list of authorized people.

Then, in order to activate your parking authorisation, you can either:

Once your parking account is active, you can purchase parking authorizations via the EPFL Campus mobile App (iOS or Android), or through the dedicated website (Gaspar account necessary). You can also purchase these at the parking desk.

The following persons are also eligible for green spaces:

  • Staff of the Formation Continue UNIL-EPFL Foundation
  • Staff of the Language Centre EPFL
  • Staff of the International Academy of Sports Science and Technology (AISTS)

Their registration in the system is subject to validation, by sending an e-mail to [email protected].

Controls

Security agents control parked vehicles by scanning number plates. A “negative” scan signals a vehicle without a valid parking authorization. Data is processed in accordance with the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP).

Only parking tickets linked to information system failures under the responsibility of EPFL may be cancelled; all other parkings tickets cannot be cancelled.

We would like to remind you that parking outside the parking spots is not tolerated.

Please note that parking tickets that have not been paid will be forwarded to the police commission.
